1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Did you use a different knot in your tie today? It seems fatter than usual, which works with the fit I think.

    Same knot, but the narrow blade of that tie is wider than average, so the whole knot becomes proportionately larger. Thanks!

    By the way, the shirt/tie/pocket square matching on your most recent look is really clever. The socks... um, well... [​IMG]

    ...

    Really clever combo. I don't actually like it, in the sense it doesn't sing to me, but as a technical pattern & colour co-ordinating exercise it's really cleverly put together. Nice one!

    apologies for the giantism.
    it was the first day of the bar exam.
    luftvier and i were the best dressed men among thousands.
    perhaps a picture of us both tomorrow.


    Good luck with the bar exam. I certainly wasn't that well dressed for mine. Can you still pass the whole exam based solely on a solid Multistate score there or am I showing my age?
    And, although I seem to be in the minority, I like the flash of the lighter shoes with the suit.

    Thx for the tip Vox - pencilled in for Saturday night

    Make sure that you have a driver and car, or a reliable taxi. It's in the middle of Boca.

    I wrote up a capsule summary of BA here a bit over a year ago.

    Sharp stuff.
    Thank you. Your jacket today is... quite something. [​IMG]


    Dark shirt

    I'm gonna be the dissenting voice here (ironic, given my traditional defence of the dark/black shirt in WAYWRN). All these elements are good on their own but I don't think the jacket and shirt work together - the contrast with the light, earthy-toned, jacket is a bit off. With a grey jacket and everything else the same, this would be great.

    it was the first day of the bar exam.

    I have no difficulty believing this. Good luck!

    Excellent stuff.

    I see what you mean, but I prefer brown (in this case beige) and blue to grey and blue. The beige makes it warmer and more interesting.

    Edit: here's another example with brown(s):

    ^ Not bad at all, Spoo. I'm not mad about the socks, but this is a tasteful look, indeed

    Thanks Barima - I did it for shits and giggles.


    Nice combo...aside from those socks. [​IMG]

    Mike


    Thanks Mike - I did it all for the nookie.


    Why do you tempt me so? Lovely collar on the shirt.


    Thanks! Buy one from me! You wont regret it! [​IMG] I geeeve you good price, my friend. [​IMG]

    ...

    I would never in a million years wear this, but hot damn you make it work.

    By the way, the shirt/tie/pocket square matching on your most recent look is really clever. The socks... um, well... [​IMG]

    Thanks C - I did it all for the glory of love.

    Everyone here looks so great!

    Here's my first post to WAYWRN:

    I'm a grad student, with limited means, so I generally pick up all my 'nice' clothes thrifting.

    I was going for a conservative trad look, hence the pic is titled "Boo Tradley."

    Vintage Southwick for Andover Shop Herringbone Tweed Sport Coat. Just picked this up yesterday, and it fits great w/o any alterations, sleeves could stand to be a 1/2" longer I think.

    Shirt is BB non-iron, picked up a few years ago at Salvation Army for a couple of bucks. It's tenty, but not a problem with a jacket on.

    Tie is a Navy, Purple, and Silver BB Makers Rep, also from SA.

    Pants are Dockers slim fit khakis.

    Shoes are Rockport penny loafers, picked up for a song on ebay.

    Sorry for the bathroom cellphone shot...
